Easy to follow Review by Kirsten

I found it easy to follow. I'm used to chart. The chart is attached to the video. If one isn't used to knitting cables or using chart it is best to knit along or make samples. The pattern is advanced but not difficult to do. I also found the story telling interesting because it is the history behind the patterns.

Easy to follow Review by Kirsten H.

I found it easy to follow. I'm used to follow charts, which is attached to the video. It is advanced cable knitting but not difficult. If one is not used to knit cable it would be better to knit along or knit samples before hand.

Very bad DVD Review by Luz Marina Rivera

I too was very very disappointed for a $19.95 DVD I paid. I don't think I got my money's worth. Kathy doesn't explain in detail how she started the cable from scratch. I am a beginner and I was totally lost. Wish it was slower too, her hand covered the cable design and I couldn't see the end result after she picked up those cable stitches. Wish I could get my money back. Plus the DVD's design was a disaster, hard to follow with a Title from 1 to 7 and each title having 2 chapters. More detail needed to be added like more pictures and the chart was hard to see. She didn't supply those charts so I can see it in print or for download. That should have been part of the deal.

disppointment Review by Carolina Castello

I knew that Kathy was a cable queen, but the only thing she did was follow a chart. Anyone can do that. Yes did explain who to fix cables if you cross the the other side, etc.

Classic to Creative Knit Cables with Kathy Zimmerman Review by Jeane Albinet

I am very disappointed with this video. I am new to cable knitting and she did very little beyond following the chart. She only covered how to correct 1 mistake. I think she could have given more tips than spending time on the history of cable knitting.
